I remember that feeling after they were born.......if it's any consolation, it's nothing compared how tired you'll be soon. You'll find levels of tired you didn't even know could exist.

cute kid

you fathers are very lucky, congratulations to not just the finance guy, but to everyone that is a father in this thread, it takes something special to raise a kid while juggling hobbies and moneypits like e36's lol, I never appreciated my father for doing so but I see how hard it was for him to do but I think he did a good job.



heres a pull from 30-62 in my car, power loss is apparent "/

Excellent! That's where I just got to now with the Rover sold. The Disco is down at the train station anyway so that doesn't count towards my driveway.

Got a free set of ACS rep pedals. The metal is in pretty bad condition, so I took the rubber out already and am gonna start refinishing them soon! Any suggestions? Gold vinyl? LOL

Tacos run rampant and a baby boom ensues. Is there a connection?

pretty sure one of my RSM's is about to buy the farm this is the second time in a year... It may be the other side of the car this time but honestly what the hell. I'll probably bite the bullet and buy some Bilstein shocks and the rouge mounts this time because the noises this thing makes back there are scary.

excessive camber, weak ass Rokkor shocks? I have rear springs for Billie PSS9's so I'm going to pinch pennies and buy some of the HD bilstien M3 sports and the rouge RSMs and hope it makes everything go away.
